Summer in St. Louis: Have an Adventure 

Page 10 of 45

You choose to head to the City Museum — always a great choice.

The brainchild of the late genius Bob Cassilly, the City Museum (750 North 16th Street, 314-231-2489) has been the pride of St. Louis — and a first-call pick for dazzling out-of-towners — since its opening in 1997. More eclectic-playground-meets-art-installation than a proper museum, it's five floors of slides, caves, interactive sculptures and decommissioned airplanes that awaken your child within. With the opening of its new Artquarium, the ever-evolving space brings another reason to make a repeat visit.

All that time spent falling off slides and dodging projectiles in the oversized ball pit has left you feeling peckish. Where to now?

A little BBQ sounds delicious. If you choose to head to Pappy's for lunch, turn to page 18.

Maybe you like salt-crusted, bread-based snacks? If you choose to eat at Gus' Pretzels, turn to page 19.
